Virginia Leishman's reading of this wonderful novel about the innocence and adventure of childhood is in top form. Her voice is gentle and genuine, drawing in listeners of all ages. As she tells the story of three children who move from their stately London home to a poor cottage in the country when their father is suddenly taken away, her voice moves between characters with ease, making clear transitions between the children, their mother, and the various grown-ups they befriend. This unabridged classic is an absolute listening pleasure, and worth listening to again and again. S.E.S.
